Sorry for the lack of updates, work has been CRAZY busy, and these past few days I've been visiting family in Baltimore. Yesterday, we went to an apple farm, where I got some GIANT apples (I'll post pictures later), some pumpkin butter, pickled spicy garlic cloves, and some champagne cranberry jelly. I still don't understand why I feel the need to buy anything food related with the name "champagne" in it, but oh well.
We also got to visit a second-hand animal farm! And when I say second-hand, I don't mean gently used, either!! I made friends with an emaciated calf I named "Veal". We bonded, even though I had a cheeseburger for lunch. I got to see a drunken donkey, a freaky looking turkey missing it's butt feathers, an emu needing a hip replacement, a cross-eyed goat, a rabbit with an attitude, and an alpaca!!
I brought up some Villa Jolanada Prosecco for mimosas, but ended up drinking most of it by myself. It's a really yummy, really inexpensive sparkler!
I had a great time, and hope to be doing it soon! Maybe next time I'll remember to bring sneakers, as boots are less than ideal for dodging random animal poop!!
